I want in on this one.

I might tie up some bluegill spiders. They were awesome 'round here.

Excellent, Carman the Lite Brite Leech sounds like a great one, and Stl_ Geoff glad you jumped in-- foam spiders are a lot of fun to fish.

Hopefully we'll get a few more folks-- I'm holding off to let others sign up, but I'll jump in too if you don't get 12.

Hi Guys, Tried some of my weighted Cats Whiskers on an english stillwater only yesterday-red tungsten bead heads, red bead chain eyed and chartreuse plus unweighted ones. Had loads of follows but only nipping the tails. When I pinched the tails shorter the devils then stopped following altogether. Isn't trout fishing wonderful at times! What did I catch on-fiery red tungsten bead head buzzer, black thread body and red holographic rib was all I could catch on while my partner was catching on dry flies on a freezing cold very windy day.

I'm in for a Gurgler, my favorite Bass fly...

Don't those fish know what they're supposed to be hitting?



I'm mighty curious to find out how they work in my local waters. I've never fished them before.

Kai.

Hey Mark,

Is there a deadline to when people can sign up. I only ask because I dont want to send the flies to early and have to send a second package.

Im still waiting on a certain material to be restocked so I can start tying my flies up so I dont think I will end up sending them to early. I was just curious if there was a deadline for the sign up.

Tyler

Swirlchaser- glad to have you in this one with a gurgler. I'll send you a pM with my address so you'll know where to send them.

Tyler- I was hoping we'd get 12 swappers, so wanted to leave it open for a bit. What I normally do is divide the flies up equally among the participants-- so if you send in 12 flies and it turns out there are only 10 participants (unfortunately sometimes people drop out at the last minute), you'd get 12 flies back-- 9 from the other participants and 3 duplicates for 12 flies total. Hope fully that makes sense.

With swirlchaser joining us, we have 9 in this swap now -- hopefully we'll get a few more -- and I'll jump in to make it 10 if we don't get anyone else.

I'll go for a DW Minnow or maybe a Diamond Hair Minnow.
